Beyond the Curtain: Campaign Financing, Gerrymandering, and Barriers to Voting
We have three wonderful panelists:
Dave Daley, author of Ratfucked, an incredibly important recent book, reviewed in the NY Times and elsewhere, that explains gridlock in Congress as largely due to the gerrymandering of Congressional districts carried out over the past decades or so.
Sheila Krumholz from the Center for Responsive Politics, speaking about spending on the presidential race, outside spending – including super PACs and dark money groups and the implications thereof.
Nick Nyhart, President of Every Voice Center, long-time activist on these issues, talking about possible solutions to money in politics.
